    Hi every one,
    With TI 10, if I want to restore my partition with a full and a differential backups,do I have to proceed in two successive steps or both can be done at the same time.
    If done at the same time, how do I do that?

    Thank you!

    Hello babac,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Please notice that when restoring from differential backup you are prompted to choose to which point should the image be restored - date of full backup creation, or date of differential backup creation.
    You can find the detailed instructions on the restore operation in the chapter 6 "Restoring the backup data" of the respective User's Guide.

    Thank you.

    Hello,
    Thank you for your answer.
    I read the User'S Guide, but did not find the answer as to the exact way TI 10 would proceed in such a situation.

    Hello babac,

    Please note that the information Marat have provided can be found in the Acronis True Image 10.0 Home User's Guide (page 37).

    Basically, if you have full backup archive and incremental/differential backup, to restore the system to the point of incremental/differential backup creation you need to point Acronis True Image to restore only incremental/differential backup. It will automatically recognizes the initial full backup and proceed with the restoration.

    Thank you.
